Angel Esteban's story

Angel Esteban is 48 years old, married, and lives with his wife and five children (22, 21, 18, 15, and 5 years old) in the Pueblo Viejo canton in Ventanas in the Los Rios province. The members of the community bank Unido Somos are located in the El Marañón area of the Puerto Pechiche parish in the Pueblo Viejo canton. This group works with short cycle farmers who plant corn, rice, and beans. Angel is a farmer who plants corn, rice, and beans. He purchases his products at the Karlita Agricultural Supply store and sells them at Castillo market. He is asking for this loan because in order to plant corn, rice and beans, he needs to buy seeds, supplies, manure, and liquid fertilizer for the crops. The support of this loan will help him economically and enable him to meet his needs. He faces challenges such as infestations, diseases, and changes in weather, and with the help of the loan, it will be easier to purchase supplies. His dream is to be able to purchase a farm and plant more crops to increase his income. In his free time, he likes to play sports.
